Risk Analysis
Risk analysis of this project has determined that there are few risks involved with this project, however the risks include: delay of start from weather, delay during construction due to weather, delay of deliverables, and overtime due to delays. Delay of start or construction due to weather is the highest risk involved on the project and delay of deliverables is second. Overtime as a risk is included due to added cost, but can also be part of the contingency plan set forth. For weather related interruptions, close watch of the forecast is needed and simple tents to cover the work area can be brought in. The tents will add to the cost by $100, but the added cost is negligible next to overtime or delay of completion. The project manager (PM) is responsible for implementing any contingency plans based on these risks.

Project Approach
The mission for this project is to build a detached two-car garage. The benefits for the garage will be to keep the cars out of the weather and added storage. The scope will be to finish this project in 3 months from the start of the dirt work to the finishing touches. The garage will be bricked on the outside to match the bricks on the house with grey trim.

The garage will be built with one major contractor as the manager subbing the jobs out for dirt work, cement and then the framing of the garage. The contractor will see to the building material. Our company will see to the permitting and the budget and time restraints.

Once the permits have been approved, construction on the garage can begin. When putting the plan in place scheduled slips should be factored in as a buffer. With the planning and regular checks this should be a positive experience for the home owner.
